CORONAVIRUS: Boca Nail Bar Advertises It’s Open, Closes When Calls

Coronavirus News
Not so fast. Lacquer Me Nail Bar is closed again, after calls.

BOCA RATON, FL ( — The Lacquer Me Nail Bar in Boca Raton sent a message out via social media that it’s open — that it has special permission from Palm Beach County to continue its nail services. But when we called after being tipped by readers, we were told that the message must have been sent out in error because — of course — the City of Boca Raton order prohibits nail salons, and other non-essential businesses — from conducting business.

A salon representative first stated that the Palm Beach County order permits nail salons to remain open, but we have re-read that order several times and see no ‘nail salon’ exclusion. Even in Palm Beach County, nail salons are not considered “essential.”

In the City of Boca Raton, which has led the way with extensive rules and regulations, nail salons were never on the list of exceptions.

Lacquer Me Nail Bar confirms it is — and will remain — closed.
